I see so many amazing stylish products from fashion to furniture from beauty to books (and some dreadful ones too...) during my working week as a style journalist and as MD of Lovely's Vintage Emporium that I have decided to share some of them once in a while on this blog - the last 'vintage-ish finds of the week' blog covered a myriad of finds from Jubilee-inspired homewares to a book on vintage dads...
Here are a few of my favourite vintage-ish finds this week:
BOOK: HOLLYWOOD RIDES A BIKE, CYCLING WITH THE STARS
This really rather fab book has more than 150 pages of photographs of Hollywood stars such as Humphrey Bogart, Doris Day, Betty Grable, Audrey Hepburn, Alfred Hitchcock and Sophia Loren...on their bikes. Written by film critic Steven Rea, it is way cooler than it sounds and is published in three days time (17th May 2012) by Turnaround Publishing for £12.99.

BEAUTY: LIPSTICK QUEEN, LIPTROPOLIS
This is the first in a new series of lipstick trios called The Lipstick Library by Poppy King aka the Lipstick Queen. The packaging is like a book that then opens to reveal three lipsticks. This first one is called Liptropolis as the packaging is inspired by the 1927 film Metropolis. Available at Space NK for £40.
LINGERIE: PANACHE, PATRIOTIC SPORTS BRA
I hope you enjoyed my round-up! Please do comment on this blog as I do love to read your feedback.
